It Rocked My Tenderness. ~ Carolyn Riker {Poem}


And the piano played a melody…softly through the nasturtium vines and into my heart.

In my twenties I searched.  

In my thirties I settled down.

In my forties I questioned.

In my fifties I followed my heart.

Aching into the chords, I heard the truth.

Be yourself.

A deep blues mirrored my poetry and sang to my heartstrings.

You’ll be just fine.

The dusty keyboard, tantalized my fingers as the music flowed through the curves of my soul.

I echoed the rhythm.

It rocked my tenderness and filled the missing keys with love.



Love elephant and want to go steady?
